Looking to the Local

The latest edition of our exclusive supporters’ magazine considers the role of ‘the local’ in Welsh public policy.

An eclectic mix of contributors look at how place-based initiatives have worked in Wales, as well as what should be done differently. And we couldn’t ignore the political backdrop while we were compiling this issue – we’ve included features on both the local and general elections.
